GPO refresh error - Policy Refresh has not completed in the expected time. Exiting

I'm having problem with my GPO changes, that I'd like to force to my terminal server users here's what I've done:

  1. I've made some necessary changes in one of the Domain Controllers to disable the GPO which applies to my Terminal Server user OU
  2. and then I go to the Terminal Server mstsc /admin console to perform the GPo refresh by using /force parameter, however I got this error instead:

C:\Documents and Settings\Adminisrator>gpupdate /force Refreshing Policy...

User Policy Refresh has not completed in the expected time. Exiting... User Policy Refresh has completed.

Computer Policy Refresh has not completed in the expected time. Exiting... Computer Policy Refresh has completed.

FYI: the target TS is running on Windows Server 2003 Standard R2 SP2 64 bit edition the GPO object that I changed is the Enable Clipboard Redirection (Computer GPO - Loopback) - so that the user is now able to copy paste as opposed previously disabled.

but then the changes still got no effect yet as I logged in to the terminal server ?

is there any way of how to make it in effect immediately please ?

Thanks

Check the Application and System logs for errors after the GPUPDATE fails. This also could be an issue with the computer reaching a DC - you might have AD issues afoot as well.

Let us know...
